I've printed all my conference registration paperwork and put the address of my colleague's hotel into my iPhone, we plan to explore a different mall each night for dinner after each long day of conferencing. I've located my passport and it hasn't expired. Heck, will you look at that plastic document wallet? It contains every bit of paper I need for the trip. Except the tick box packing list I drew up last night. I know from past experience that filing away a packing list is never a good idea.
Mr SSG has been grazing on this good stuff whilst I've been excessively planning and itemizing. It was from our Costco trip at the weekend and the packet is only 1/3 full now. Bhuja Original Mix is the beer snack. It's a mix of dried peas, peanuts, raisins and crispy things dusted with an Indian spice mix. It's made with sunflower oil and not greasy or salty like these snacks sometimes are. What's more, Australia, Majans is Australian made and exports to the world. The beer snacks that export to the world have to be good for you and Australian jobs. So do your national duty this weekend and get yourself to Costco.
|TeaSub - $19.95 from typo.|
I saw this TeaSub at typo and almost burst into song. Sadly, it doesn't whistle 'We All Live in a Yellow Submarine' as it makes your cup of tea, but it is awfully cheery. The submarine is made of silicone and fits about a teaspoon of tea leaves. It has a chain that you drape over the edge of your cup.
|Teabah Relax - $20 for 50g.|
TeaSub meet Teabah. The Relax tea was a bonus from the ladies at La Clinica (they spoil me). Teabah are certified organic loose leaf teas and Australian made. 'Relax' is a blend of chamomile, lemon balm, calendula and vervain. The result is a light and soothing brew. It's easy to drink without the bitterness you sometimes get in herbal teas.
The tea was so pretty to look at.
I placed the tea inside the TeaSub and watched as it journeyed to the depths of my mug.
I had a little smile as my cup of tea brewed.
Speaking of things yellow, to paraphrase Rachel Zoe, it's ba-na-nas right now. They're around the $3 / kilo mark these days. Happy, happy days!!!!!
It looks like I'll be off the blog for a little while. I will touch base when I can but if I'm not back before I fly out, I hope you will all keep well until I return.
Take care all,
